Ok guys, this is so exciting. inkdjsdhgnbrjtdnvimkdf Ok, so my skin has been breaking out badly lately and it's very red, irritated, and flaky around those areas because ive used tea tree oil. So i wanted to use an oatmeal mask to soothe it. BUT my parents were around and i dont like to do skincare thinggs around them bc i get embarrassed. So i decided only to use the milky, liquid that comes out of the oatmeal when you wet it, so that it wont be as noticeable as having whole oats on my face.I used old fashioned oats, so it took a lil while for the liquid to come out. But i squeezed the oats and got the milk (lets call it that) and applied it to my dry face, Btw, i did this at night right after washing and drying my face. It does apply streaky, or atleast it did for me bc i ended up applying the oatmeal to my face and rubbing it till it didnt feel as watery on my face and felt creamier. Then i picked off the oatmeal (took forever) and left the oatmeal milk. It left my face with white streaks, and it looks like you have ashy, dry skin. i didnt apply any moisturizer after and i went to bed. Usually when i wake up from bed, my face is so oily and greasy, if i touch my forehead, my finger will slip. its just crazy. my face will look as if its been doused in olive oil. But today, IT WAS MATTE, I SHIT YOU NOT. oshfgkbgsvdkfjbdfvntr i couldnt believe it. I first woke up, and touched my forehead. It still felt like i had the oatmeal milk on, so i was surprised that it didnt wear off. (actually i think it wore off a BIT, but i was still matte!!) I was sure it was still gunna look oily tho. But i looked in the mirror and my whole face was matte!!!!(The breakouts dried up a bit too!) I couldnt believe it. This is crazy guys. I didnt think anything in the world could do this. Milk of magnesia doesnt even come close to this. I am wondering if it will have the same effect over moisturizer. I am going to try it out today, over moisturizer and under makeup. The problem is, it has a streaky finish like MOM. But im thinking i could just wet a paper towel and rub the streaky areas till they go away. What are your thoughts on this? I just wanted to share this with every one. Im so excited about it, and i hope it works over moisturizer. Btw i go to the derm tomorrow and im still hoping for accutane. I will share my regimen when i get back from the derm Send positive thoughts me way! thanks (:
